Baked Apricot Casserole
Here's a great tasting, simple recipe for a baked apricot dish that only requires 4 ingredients. Now I'll warn you this isn't for the diet conscious or those counting calories, but we all have to splurge a little.
InstructionsStart by soaking the 4 packages of dried apricots in boiling water - it will take only about 15 minutes for them to rehydrate. Or, open and drain the 4 cans of apricots.
With the apricots ready, remove them from the water or juice and line the bottom of a 2 quart buttered casserole dish with half of them.
Over the apricots, layer half of the light brown sugar (3/4 cup) followed by 1/2 box of Ritz crackers, broken into small pieces. Then cut up 1 stick of butter into small pieces and distribute the pieces evenly over the crackers. Repeat with another layer of apricots, brown sugar, Ritz crackers and butter. Bake for (1) hour in a preheated 300-degree oven.
This dish is delicious served with pork, chicken or duck and you may want to consider preparing it for a holiday dinner. I think it's best served as a dessert. All you have to do is put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
Time to prepare: 30 minutes.
